Institut Jules Bordet

Official website

The Institute Jules Bordet, an Integrated Multidisciplinary Center, is the only autonomous hospital in Belgium totally dedicated to cancer. It covers both cancer screening and clinical care, is involved in research activities and is at the same time a teaching hospital at a high level. The smooth cooperation between these three activities presents an original aspect and an important plus for the approach to the disease.

Clinical care

The original aspect of oncological practice at the Institut Jules Bordet is based upon the truly multidisciplinary therapeutical approach, reenforced by a single patient file that is used by all physicians regardless of their specialty. This file is present at all consultations and hospitalizations and collects all medical information on the patient. After establishment of the diagnosis, decisions about treatment are taken by common agreement, by a collective reflexion of surgeons, radiologists and internists, based upon the most modern therapeutical techniques.

Fundamental and clinical research

The development of today's cancerology would not have been possible but for an intense laboratory and clinical research.

The "Laboratory for Research and Clinical Investigation"is pursuing fundamental research, especially in the field of hematology, mammary cancerology, on melanome and pulmonary cancer etc, activities that have led to hundreds of scientific contributions recognized on an international level.

A fundamental aspect of the Institute Jules Bordet is the close integration of research and practical oncology; as a consequence clinical research is permanently present in the treatment the physicians apply. A number of these clinical research programs are carried out in cooperation with national and international centers, especially in the framework of the EORTC (European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer) that was founded at the Institute Jules Bordet in 1964.

Teaching Hospital

Academically and in the framework of the missions entrusted to the Institute Jules Bordet by the Université Libre de Bruxelles, the Institute has gained a reputation for the quality of its teaching of graduate and post-graduate courses. Every year the Institute forms and trains several oncologists who later practise their specialities in hospitals of Belgium as well as young researchers who will return to their respective hospitals to make use of their newly acquired expertise.

Conclusion

The Institute Jules Bordet distinguishes itself by its vocation as an integrated multidisciplinary center, developing the most recent approach and therapies based on active research, thus radiating both on the national and the international level.
